What is your favorite boat plugging outfit you guys/gals use? Outfit meaning rod and length and reel with type of line and pound rating.

I personally like a 7 - 7 1/2 ft. rod with either a stella 6000 or 8000 depending on the time of year and fireline 20 or 30 depending on the reel.

Now this is purely for plugging.

Thanks guys! I like a medium or slow action rod as well. I like the soft tipped rods that allow flexibility when bouncing off the bottom plus, if I get hung up, they are more forgiving initally with the braid.

I am surprised to hear the reel you using though. It seems a little too small to me.

Anything I should know.....

Thanks for sharing guys. I haven't had a chance to reply but have read it. fmTuna, sounds like you have a great set up and one I am going to look at.

hipkvw,

Yes, you are right my friend. I also will be throwing 2-4 oz. bucktails and large rubber (9")shads with 3-4 oz. lead heads....need something that will handle that....the reels are more than okay but I am looking for the "perfect" rod....
